The Refugio Country Opry welcomes Wade Benson Landry and his wife Teresa from Branson Mo. at its fifth annual free show at the Expo Center at the fairgrounds on Thursday, Aug. 4.

The husband-wife team sing up-tempo, swingin’ style Cajun and traditional country music. Wade has performed at Carnegie Hall and made countless television appearances.

His wife, Teresa Howe Landry is a gifted solo artist in her own right. She performed in Nashville before coming to Branson.

“Their performance really grabs the audience’s attention from the start,” a spokesperson said.

The couple usually begin the show with some “hot” Cajun style fiddling,” to get your hands clapping and your toes tapping.

Wade is from Abbeville, La. He began playing the fiddle at an early age and won the title of “Louisiana State Champion Fiddler” twice. He is also the 2010 Branson Show Best Fiddler.

He became a featured performer in Nashville, Tenn. with great country music performers like Jimmy C. Newman, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Mel Tillis, and The Oak Ridge Boys.

Teresa has opened for Connie Smith, The Gatlin Brothers, Rhonda Vincent and Toby Keith.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Donations are appreciated. All net proceeds go to the Opry Scholarship fund for graduating seniors from all three county schools.

For directions or information, call Jay and Opal at 361-543-4297 or 550-3212 or Neal and Linda 361-543-4924 after five.
